Bonanza - The Abduction

by NBC



Set in Nevada in the 1860's, Bonanza chronicled the adventures of the Cartwright family who owned a large ranch called The Ponderosa. Ben Cartwright and his three sons, Adam, Hoss, and Joe fought for what was just and decent in a time where lawlessness was common.

The widowed patriarch Ben Cartwright had three sons, each by a different wife: the oldest was the urbane architect Adam Cartwright, who built the ranch house. The second was the warm and lovable giant Eric, better known by his nickname "Hoss." And the youngest was the hotheaded and impetuous Joseph or "Little Joe." They all lived and worked on The Ponderosa. Nearby Virginia City helped populate the episodes with guest starring characters from all over America.

Broadcast between September 1959 and January 1973. Filmed by the National Broadcasting Company at Paramount Studios.

Subject: Uneven sideshow mystery
Despite multiple murders, this story tries for a few laughs often at the expense of some of the eccentric characters inhabiting a carnival midway.

Supporting cast includes Stafford Repp (Chief O'Hara from "Batman" without his Irish brogue), Theo Marcuse (Star Trek's "Catspaw") as a magician, and Robert "Buck" Maffei as the strongman Hercules. Maffei later appeared in Star Trek's "The Galileo Seven" as a giant neanderthal alien.

Familiar theme replaced by what sounds like Duane Eddy.
